Price Lists are a convenient way for you to manage all of your prices in NCR Silver Pro Restaurant. Price Lists allow you to quickly update prices in one place in Silver Back Office without having to edit each item record. Additionally, you can schedule when you want the prices to take effect. Price Lists also enable you to schedule and manage pricing for events and promotions.

For multi-stores, you can use price lists to manage pricing for individual stores. Users assigned to a specific store can only see the price lists assigned to their store. Additionally, price lists can be created at the store level.

Price Lists allow you to set prices for:
  • Items and items with variations.
  • Modifier items and modifier items with variations (as long as the modifier is set to be priced differently than the underlying item).
  • Promotions using Set Price and Amount Off discounts.
How does the POS know which price to apply?
  • First, the POS checks for an active event-based price list. If two or more event-based price lists overlap (i.e., the events occur at the same time), the POS uses the price list with the higher ranking. (See ‘Ranking Event-Based Price Lists.’)
  • If an active event-based price list does not exist, the POS checks for an active non-event based price list.
  • (Multi-store only) If a non-event based price list does not exist, the POS uses the store override price, if any.
  • If a non-event based price list does not exist and a store override price does not exist, the POS uses the company price. This is the price assigned to the object on the corresponding item or modifier record.
How does the POS know which price to use when a promotion applies?
  • First, the POS checks for an active event-based price list. If two or more event based price lists overlap, the POS uses the price list with the higher ranking. (See ‘Ranking Event-Based Price Lists.’)
  • If a active event-based price list does not exist, the POS checks an active non-event based price list.
  • If an active non-event based price list does not exist, the POS uses the value from the promotions page.
With price lists, NCR Silver Pro Restaurant adds one new access level, ’Price Lists,’ which allows you to control the users who can access the Price Lists page in Silver Back Office. Review your user roles to ensure they possess the appropriate access levels.
 

Configuring Price Lists


You configure price lists in Silver Back Office. When you create a price list, you can associate it to an event or you can set a specific start date. If you do not assign an event or a specific start date, the start date is considered to be the current date and the new price list takes effect at the next data sync.

User-added image
 
  1. Under ‘Price List Settings,’ type a name for the price list.
  2. Use the default setting, ‘This Price List is Active At All Times.’ You can use the start and end date to control the activation of the price list. To create a price list with an event, see ‘Configuring an Event-Based Price List.’
  3. (Optional) Select a start date for the price list. The start date allows you to create a price list and have it take effect on a certain date, rather than immediately. If you want the price list to take effect immediately, leave the start date blank.
  4. (Optional) Select an end date. If you do not want to have an end date for the price list, leave end date blank.
If you have a price list with a start date of 01/01/2015 and no end date, and a second price list with a start date of 09/01/2015 and no end date, the first price list remains active until 09/01/215 when the second price list takes effect.

The matching objects appear on the screen. Each object is identified with:
  • An object type, such as ‘Item,‘ ’Item Variation,’ ‘Modifier,’ ‘Modifier Variation,’ and ‘Promotion.’
  • An object identifier, such as ‘Category,’ ‘Modifier Group,’ or ‘Promotion.’
  • The item name.
  • The default price, which is the price of the object on the individual record.
  1. Under ‘List Price,’ type the price for the item.
  2. Click Save.
